Case study of a client using Smart Currency when emigrating

Ms. Hawkins was emigrating to New Zealand.

She contacted Smart Currency in advance to discuss how she could make sure she got the best deal and avoid risk when transferring her savings.

She was aware that the New Zealand Dollar had strengthened over the eighteen months prior to her move and that the rate at that time was poor. She didn't need all the money at once so she thought, having talked things through with her currency specialist, to take it over in stages.

Ms. Hawkins left instructions that if the rate hit 2.60 (it was 2.43 at the time), 87,500 was to be exchanged into New Zealand Dollars. This in fact happened within two months and she got an additional NZD 14,875 for her Sterling. This paid for the flights and all of her emigration costs.
